Kalus Hideaway Hotel

Near Uda Walawe National Park | First Class

Uda Walawe is one of Sri Lanka’s most abundant National Parks, and Kalu’s Hideaway is right outside it, less than a mile from the park’s famous Elephant Transit Home.

Set in its own beautiful five acres of garden and forest, the hotel comprises just 14 thoughtfully appointed rooms, decorated with white walls and textiles and furniture built of chunky local timber. Most feature a private patio, deck or balcony, with the other two sharing a pleasant common terrace.

The restaurant serves diverse a la carte dishes and the bar is relaxed and well stocked with a good wine selection and beer. There’s a nice outdoor pool and a vegetable garden for a supply of the freshest produce. You can go fishing in the hotel’s private lake, a small spa, pool table and a games room - this isn’t the world’s fanciest hotel - but the big draw here is your fantastic proximity to one of the world’s finest national parks, with its 250-strong herd of elephants and hundreds of other mammal and bird species.
